Topless protest: Femen campaigners target the Davos summit

Topless protesters from the Ukraine have been arrested after clashing with police at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

The women, from the activist group Femen, stripped off in the freezing temperatures and tried to breach security barriers while waving flares and chanting "SOS Davos".

In their second year at the summit, they said they were protesting against what they describe as the male domination of big business.

"There is only one way for us today to attack patriarchy. We are using our naked bodies, our nudity, to share a new interpretation about nudity," said protester, Inna Shevchenko.

The mission of the "FEMEN" movement is to create the most favourable conditions for the young women to join up into a social group with the general idea of the mutual support and social responsibility, helping to reveal the talents of each member of the movement.
